So, Joe bought an amp all the way in Wisconson! Today we decided, since it's a long weekend, that we would road tip up there to pick it up, and of course we took Mal! It was a 4 1/2 hour drive up there, then we hung out at the store for about 45 minutes. Mal really wanted to try his hands out on one of their many custom guitars, but everything there was so pricey that even Joe didn't try to play one. All fear the you-break-it-you-buy-it rule. However there wasn't a total lack of photo ops for us there.
Then we decided to walk around historic downtown La Crosse. However we got there too late to go into any of the shops. :(. But it was beautiful none the less.
Not to mention the scenery! Mal was amazed by the Mississippi river and loved watching all the people in boats. We got to see a river boat, several fishers, a few speed boats, and even saw a guy eat shit water skiing. It made us giggle a little. :)
